I loved me some Gavin and Stacey. I only got into the show in the middle of series two, but I avidly watched series three and even had a little sniffle at the last episode.
And my favourite character? It's got to be Nessa. She had the best lines in the show, and was such a well rounded, hilarious character. Getting up on my feminist high horse (whoa there Barbara) I would say it was good to see a strong female character in a prime time show. One who didn't give a shit. One who did exactly what she wanted to.
So as a tribute, I give you my line embroidery of Nessa, and her quote about how she felt on her wedding day. Tidy.

This weekend I made these slippers. I got the idea from a post on Craftster at http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=323205.0. They only took a couple of hours, and they are so cosy! I used some fabric with Japanese kitties that I bought at the Harrogate craft fair in the Autumn.

So, for Christmas I decided to give P his own Louis Wain cat. I couldn't afford a painting, and I couldn't find a print I liked, so I decided to embroider a cat. This is a embroidered version of "Cat with Lute" - you can see the original here: http://www.lilitu.com/catland/gallery/lute.shtml.
I've never really been confident with satin stitch, so I decide to get confident, and so this is all pretty much satin stitch. As you can see from the photo it still needs pressing framing properly. It's about 7 by 5 inches. I'm very proud of it, even though it was only finished on Christmas eve at 10pm!!

And at the same time I'm crafting away with no place to share my wonderful creations. So for 2010, I want to post my crafty creation here. I'll start with a couple of projects from 2009.
First is a bat I made for Pen and Alex in New Zealand. Bat was made of thin cordeuroy (sp?) and flowery pink cotton, and luffingly hand stitched. Ahn.
